Funky spaghetti: The Weekly Challenge Update

Spaghetti Squash w/Sauce

This week I prepared spaghetti, not using pasta, but instead used spaghetti squash for the noodles. Made enough for tonight and tomorrow

Sharon's Independence Days Challenge- Year two, week 28
1. Plant something: Sprouts
2. Harvest something: Sprouts, Cabbages, Kohl Rabi
3. Preserve something: Bought a couple of sugar pie pumpkins and processed, Made and froze dog/cat food- slowly becoming a weekly ritual- found it doesn’t take much longer then going and buying their food and the food processor is wonderful for doing this
4. Reduce Waste (recycle, reuse, reduce, repair or compost something) -The usual recycling, food waste in the compost; GARBAGE FINDS: Found a 5 gallon bucket next to a garbage can, will use for a planter, a box for taking my started garlic plants and chard home in;
5. Preparation and Storage: Setting up an Etsy shop, Bought a scroll saw to make gifts and clocks out of wood scraps (set it up in the garage or as the artsy folks call it "my Studio"!)
6. Build Community Food Systems: Starting to take the last of the veggies from the community garden plot to prep of leaving the community garden
7. Eat the Food (cook or eat something new): Pumpkin soup, veggies in the dog food, Spaghetti squash with sauce

Melinda’s Growing Challenge: Time to start breaking down my plot in the community garden, I have some plants started in my plot will take them home

Meat Free Mondays: Muffin and coffee, for lunch I ate crackers and cheese, for dinner a veggie flatbread pizza

Ditch The Disposables - I forgot muggsly one day this week- reused the paper coffee cup - no lid, from the espresso shop all day. Other than that a good week

Buy Hand challenge: Painted Martins clock, getting ready to finish. Decided to give one of my Turkey fryer burners to a friend who is getting into home beer making and borrows mine to brew the beer- figure I have one that is not being used so why not?

I've tried, really tried, to like spaghetti squash. I finally admitted to myself this summer that I just don't like the stuff. Give me any other summer squash and I'm happy as a zucchini it bread. But you can have my spaghetti squash.
